    Hi , today Ive realized some functionality on wordpress google xml sitemaps plugin; I can also include blog tags into sitemap and also author pages then I did it.
    So now, google search console shows tripled index .

    So, What is it impact on Google SEO (Both for black and white?) Should we include or exclude tag and author pages from our website sitemap.xml ?

    Sitemap isn't directly for google boost. Including tag and author pages bring you duplicate content on your site. Tags and auhors are specially for users not google ranking. Your site must be high trusted to rank high with tags
